Snack - Car Camping, Backpacking - Chocolate Crispy Treats

gluten-free chocolate crispy treats
Recipe is from We use mostly chocolate krispies, but we mix in some plain ones, maybe one or two cups, just for the look and to make the chocolate a little more mild. We think it tastes better ;-)

1/4 cup butter
10 ounces marshmallows
6 cups GF crispy cereal (Rice Krispies contain barley malt)

1. Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using buttered spatula or waxed paper, press mixture evenly into buttered 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan. Cut into squares when cool.
Yield: 24 squares, 2 x 2 inches.Note: Use fresh marshmallows for best results.

The boxes of cereal in the photo are the ones that we used for the treats in the first photo. The last I checked, Rice Krispies and Cocoa Krispies are not gluten-free. Cocoa Pebbles might be gluten-free, but you should check the ingredients before deciding to use them.
